Palmer Sculpture Biennial
In 2001 Adelaide sculptor Greg Johns purchased a former sheep grazing property at Palmer. Greg had two main aims for the property: to display of a collection of his own works and a range of other contemporary sculpture, and ecological rehabilitation. Now known as the Palmer Project it is evolving as a microcosm of the broad range of issues pertinent to the relationship between art and both ecological and cultural sustainability, part of the challenge facing all humanity. It is also a microcosm of broader topographical and cultural landscapes.
A biennial exhibition was established in 2004 which includes emerging, mid career and established artists, with diverse styles of practice represented. A distinguished artist is also invited to participate. The exhibitions are organised on the basis of artist goodwill and involvement. Artists visit the site and respond to that experience, enabling a range of contemporary sculptural expression with works somehow complementing rather than competing with the enigmatic landscape.
